This year’s 12 annual conference is being held at a time of renewal for US Counter Terrorism. With a promise to “wipe radical Islamic terrorism from the face of the earth” by the new administration, what will US counter terrorism have to do to fulfill that promise?

Taking the gloves off: Re-igniting US counter terrorism” will feature speakers that cast light on the subject of how the US can revitalize the war on Radical Islam. The debilitating effects of an anonymous and unnamed enemy for the past 8 years have led to gaping holes in the way the US effort is organized. Exciting presentations on everything from Cyber Security to banning groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood will be covered by 8 excellent speakers over 2 days bringing global best practices. A group of carefully selected vendors will support the conference with an expo of technologies that can contribute to protecting the USA.

Professionals from Israel’s security establishment will present and share their experiences in fighting this war for more almost 100 years! Read more
